Lino Print - Koi

I made this print last weekend. I used the same pearl silver and gold paint that I used for the "Five Feathers".


I cut the lino a couple of months ago but I was having trouble getting a good print off it!  I think I might have got it right this time.


I have freemotion out line quilted him and them enhanced some of the gold with 18ct Gold paint!


I think he has come up quite well.

If you look really closely at the detail photo you can see the variagated thread I used to stitch the water.

I used two threads through the needle to help the quilting standout a little more!

I'd love to know what you think.
